Topic: Heat Networks: Future technologies and meeting net zero – opportunities and challenges

In partnership with Switch2


The way buildings are heated has to change to meet the net zero target.
The focus needs to be on smart local energy systems, rather than standardised gas individual solutions.
To grow at the required rate and deliver the carbon savings needed, heat networks need to develop and take advantage of new and upcoming technologies.

The online event: ‘Heat networks: future technologies and meeting net zero – opportunities and challenges‘ will take place on Wednesday 8 July (10 am to 11.30am).

Improving energy performance is a key part of The Housing Forum’s call for Quality and Standards in housing, encouraging cross sector partnerships to achieve improved results

Expert panellists from across the heat network sector will join organisers to explore how the industry can best respond to the urgent heat decarbonisation challenge and the opportunities and challenges this presents. They will discuss alternatives to natural gas, such as heat pumps, biogas and hydrogen.

The event will be co-chaired by Shelagh Grant, Chief Executive of The Housing Forum and Richard Slee, CEO of Switch2. Speakers include Ian Allan and Simon Eddleston, of Switch2; Steve Skuse, Director of Land & Partnerships (Catalyst Housing London), and others to be confirmed.
